Balkan Memories : Media Constructions of National and Transnational History


This book gives an insight into the medial constructions of remembrance, which go hand in hand with transnational, national or nationalistic forms of politics.
Authors from post-Yugoslavia and other countries focus on the diverse transnational and national memory cultures in South-Eastern Europe, their interference and rivalry. They inquire into constructions of memory in different media from the 19th century to the recent wars. These involve longue durée, breaks and gaps, selection and suppression, traumatic events and the loss of memory, nostalgia, false memory, reactivation, rituals and traces of memory etc.
